  • Coming to Genoa is a must visit. Those who were not in the area I need to book far in advance because they are not always open to the public but visible only on the outside. Are real gems to admire, and it is also important to also book a guided tour in order to fully understand everything you can see. Absolutely visit not to be missed.

  • Interesting history of the Rolli, posh area and rich in architecture. Each building has different characteristics, but equally remarkable. What a pity that this city is so neglected, with uneven floors and badly maintained, dirty, dog droppings often frequent. Some things are accounted for by people's rudeness, many other such an administration that evidently can't do better.
